Shelly did well. This is her first surgical procedure in her life so we were concerned about her response to the anesthesia and the prolonged period under sedation. She did well with both. The anesthesiologist was a delight and really set Shelly's mind at rest. The surgeon was very thorough.
Here's what he did.
- He removed the tumor and surrounding tissue. The tissue was sent to a pathologist so they could make sure they removed enough. They did. (The pathogist was in Tijuana so that took some time.)
- He investigated the ancillary lymph nodes and ended up removing them. They also went off to a pathologist.
